Too old to be getting on the roof, so we have to take it in and get it maintained at the Tom Johnson place! I have many health problems, so have to leave it too the people who can access the top without killing themselves! LOl! We have to take her in for a leak under the sink anyway. I must use this extended warranty I paid for anyhow, so getting her looked over real good this time! We love camping but getting on top of the Micro-lite is not an option. Wish I could but hey when you can't you can't.

IMO, sealing penatrations is what lap sealant is for. That's why new RV's use lap sealant, not tape. You want the ability to remove the sealant to replace the vent/cap, etc, if needed. The Eternabond is great for damage to the rubber membrane itself...a permanent repair that you will never need/want to remove.

Keep in mind that using tape around a round flange won't look so good. Again, use the tape for straight repairs. Use Dicor lap sealant for resealing. If only touching up surface cracks, you can clean with rubbing alcohol (and some elbow grease), and just go right over the top of the crack.
